Rumors of a sinister, faceless presence are emerging from the underground. The enigma has never been seen before, only identified by its malevolent music. Reminiscent of early Gesaffelstein, it’s been dubbed “Howwler” in honor of the eerie wolf’s cry that is featured on its premiere EP, “Chapter One.” The two track selection is our first peek into Howwler’s mysterious identity; the opening track ‘Midnight’ will induce goosebumps with its serrating synths, evil cackling, and of course, the wolf’s howl. As the EP progresses to ‘Signs & Wonders,’ its aesthetic shifts from Halloween-esque to underground warehouse rave. The driving bass line on ‘Signs & Wonders’ makes it a raw dance floor track, but it’s clear that he isn’t making music for virgin ears. His style is aimed at fans of the underground, educated listeners with discerning taste and a penchant for music as dark as their black club outfits.
